Cedric Antonio Kyles (born April 24, 1964 in Jefferson City, Missouri), known professionally by his stage name Cedric the Entertainer, is an American actor, comedian, director, and game show host.
He took over from Meredith Vieira as host of the U.S. version of the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? game show in August 2013.. However, after only nine months, Cedric announced that he would be leaving the program, citing as reasons his busy schedule and the show's move to Stamford, Connecticut. Shortly afterwards, ABC announced that Terry Crews would host the 2014-15 season of Millionaire.
Along with his successor, they are the shortest running regular Millionaire hosts, having only lasted one full season each.
